Hi Ross,

We were told it was repeating, although it was just stripes. So we doubled it. I couldn't quote your post just now. The forum is really messing up. Can't add photos to posts either, or I'd show you what they specified on our build sheet. Something screwy.

I also ordered the Dupione fabric and was asked to send 28 yards. I wanted full wrap plus 2 extra filler cushions. I think I’m going to run the fabric vertically. (u shaped dinette also)

I know I’m going to want a couple of throw pillows out of the same fabric also. I won’t mind if I have extra fabric left over in case repairs are needed down the road.

It's good that you won't mind having extra Sandy. You will. Lots.

Here are the relevant sections from our build sheet. Note, a U-shaped dinette, double the fabric, also with a full wrap. 17 yards sent, approximately 7 left over.

EDIT: on second thought, perhaps our pattern wasn't really repeating, and didn't require the doubling of the fabric? That would mean they used about 10 yards, but would have used 20 if it actually repeated and required it? Just thinking out loud.

We have a U in the 19 and I recall only sending about 11-12 yds with full wrap. There is quite a bit still left out there in the garage, so I meet Donnaís replacement quantity as well. Canít imagine needing 21 yards. Maybe Upholsterers daughter needs a prom dress and they liked your fabric choice?

I was thinking horizontal across the cushion. Then I thought I really would like the valances running vertical which may look funky because the the lines won't follow in a similar pattern. Which way are you thinking of running yours?

You got me laughing over this fabric problem with the prom dress

I'm attaching two pictures. One of the fabric I've picked (light or darker not decided yet) and then how I've seen this type of weave/pattern used on an cushion. From what I've been told by people that have worked with upholstery fabric and other kinds of fabric is the one I've picked is not a 'pattern unless it is cut and cording is used on the cushion'. Meaning each individual piece is cut. When wrapped the ends of the cushion could or would have the pattern going in the other direction. Personal preference on how the customer would like it. See the colorful fabric picture for this example.

I have no need for an abundant amount of left over fabric. If I go full wrap and a hole develops or stain - I flip the cushion over. 11+ yards of fabric is way too much for me as is 7 yards of left over fabric. In 5 or more years and I tire of the fabric or it's looking warn and outdated I will recover myself. I've done it before and can do it again. Granted I've never taken on a big project like this, but could take the project on during a cold ND winter.

On another matter - I would like to ask again about the brake/signal lights. Do those lights stay on all the time when we have the lights turned on at night. In other words they work the same as the standard lights that come on the bottom of the trailer. I know .. dumb question, but wanted to double check

If you disconnect the tow vehicle, the tail lights (and brake/signal lights) will be off. It the tow vehicle is connected, they will do the same thing as the tow vehicle.

Not sure what you mean by the "standard lights that come on the bottom of the trailer".

What I meant about standard lights on the bottom of the trailer is the two lights in each corner on the rear bottom half of the trailer. I should of worded my question better. The above ones I'm asking about is the added option that we were thinking of getting.

Thank you for letting us know it works the same as the tow vehicle. That is what we were hoping for and thought it would be, but thought we should check first.

Yes, they are illuminated as a marker light but get brighter when brakes are applied.

I was originally going to run it vertical because of the same reason as you (the valences would look funky), but decided on horizontal including the valences. I had asked one of the fabric houses and they said since we will be sliding in across the fabric when we sit it would wear better.
I really think sunbrella would wear the same either way. In the end I think horizontal is a more natural orientation and draws the eye across making it look more spacious. Who knows?

All I know is those valences better be perfectly horizontal at the edges for the amount of money in excess fabric this has cost me...lol

That was my concern too - would the horizontal lines be straight on the valances. On the bright side you will have extra fabric to do it yourself if not straight
